    Along the Seward Highway, between the towering cliffs of exposed rock and the fast-icing waters of Turnagain Arm, an abandoned pickup found last month looked to be a promising lead in the search for a woman who vanished on her way to work.

    But inside the green 1996 GMC, found some six miles below McHugh Creek on Oct. 31, the belongings of Sheila Kathleen McBroom, 40, remained untouched. There were no signs of foul play, nothing wrong with the car suggesting mechanical malfunction, no suicide note.
    In the days since the discovery, not a single person has reported seeing McBroom.

    This is on a beautiful road that winds along Turnagain Arm from Anchorage to the Kenai Peninsula.

    Weird, if you read the article it says she went missing on a Monday, which would be Oct. 27th, and it references her having been last seen at 10:30 pm on the 27th, then later references her having been seen last by a Trooper at 10:30 am on October 31st and her truck being found on the 31st.

    Hopefully they will update this.

    My thoughts are with her family.

    It's so sad.
    There are too many missing people in the world.
    I wish they could all just come home...the world would be a much better place.
    Do you know if she was married or had children?
    I sat there for the longest time
    after you were gone....
    thinking about all things we said.....
    and all the things we didn't say...
    I wonder if you misunderstood,
    cause I'm no good when it comes to talking....
    And I'm sorry,I didn't know the words.......
    to make you stay.

    The article said she was a "wife and mother"

    "A wife and mother, McBroom, who went by Kathleen, was supposedly heading for work the Monday morning she vanished. Nobody is quite sure why she was on the highway.
    "My very first thought was that she needed some time away, that maybe she was just going to cool off somewhere, but I've got this gut feeling that something bad has happened," said Sue Rissel, 28, a friend of McBroom's who knew her online.



    "In the days before she disappeared, one of McBroom's teenage daughters returned after spending more than a year out of state, and McBroom appeared to be thrilled about the reunion in a personal blog entry dated Oct. 26."


    I hope they find her.

    I spent some time reading Kathleen's blog and have spoken with some of her blogging commmunity. I have written five posts on the investigation thus far.

    My biggest problem with the case is the lack of exposure that it received initially and up to now. Ms. McBroom is currently not listed in any of the missing persons databases despite this being an active investigation.

    It is very difficult for citizens to know to look for someone if authorities do not make folks aware that a person is missing and possibly endangered.
